    Well, 0.3mm, believe it or not, is very far from 0.03mm. 10x far, lol.

    first try out ZM65, lose tension first day then stay the same for the last whole week, very different from YY, previously use BG66 Ultimax and NGB98. first day of use, don't like much, due to hardness of zm65 compare to bg 66 or ngb98, but after the string settle, I start to fell in love with it, in red color, turned pink at some spots,
    strung at 24x24 lbs. after 1 week lose as much as 1lb the most. the string feel rough, but it move a bit more than YY gg or 98, don't know it's stringer fault or string type. but many previous review already mention this.

    ZM62 lasted me about 2.5 hours last night with some intense battle of the smashers gameplay. I just picked up my racket too from stringer.

    I liked the feeling of it. At 25main/27cross it was awesome

    Not as soft as BG66UM but for $5 a pack of ashaways im more than willing to adjust to it.

    you should wait a while before playing with freshly strung rackets they have a tendency to break easier

    Am up to approx. 20 hours on my set of ZM65.

    Tension (started @25lb) and feel are still good. The initial hardness has softened and is comfortable.

    Strings are still sliding over one another a little, but there's no fraying. Still appears to tolerate mishits.

    Thought that I'd have to stick to ZM67 in order to get the durability, but am rapidly favouring ZM65. Better feel without compromising tension-hold or durability.

    I'm not sure if I understand you here. What do you mean by strings sliding over one another? Can you explain that in details?

    By 'sliding over one another' I meant that the strings move a few mm sideways. Not enough for a cross to move over another cross for example. Just enough to occasionally have to push them back between points.

    When I was a junior, when strings stopped being able to slide, it was because they'd worn grooves in the other strings. It was a sign that they were about to snap.

    I mentioned it in my update to indicate that the outer surface of the string appeared to still be in good condition.

    Hope that clarifies.

    Re notching, yep... zm strings take forever to notch the outer jacket. They'll dent a tad, but won't notch or fray. Unlike the nbg98 I've been testing, already notched and frayed after just 16 hrs of play.

    Hmm,

    Maybe its my playing style, but ZM65 @ 25lb lasts me for about 3 weeks on average. Play 4-5 sessions a week.

    Bros,

    Please can you advise how much I should reduce tension by on Z65 if I am having trouble hitting the sweetspot on smash returns? They are 50% power and floating mid-court + getting killed.

    The noise and power on my smash was glorious tonight. Strung at 22/24 last year, probably 10 hours on feathers and 3 or so on plastics - the latter made it feel a bit better but not enough. reduce by 2lbs? Micropower 66 at same tension defends ok but a tad less zingy. To be strung on a MX60 so bigger sweetspot but I read you -1lb stringing this racquet as it holds tension. I don't plan on battering the tension down on plastics with this though. so 20/22?

    CHEERS!

    changing the tension when it is already so low is not going to help you I'm afraid!

    Lol "so low". so at what tension is the sweetspot the largest? I find it odd that a .65 string is so much less forgiving than a .66. Might as well sell it then eh.

    MicroPower 66 might actually be thinner than Zymax 65 (but you have them side by side). It's all in your head bro' (or hands better said or MP is a softer string)

    As I mentioned in my PM man, if you're down around 20-22lbs and you're not liking the repulsion, then chances are your racket is too heavy.

    I'd recommend the Flash Boost.
